News from NUAR - March 2024

Monthly update on The National Underground Asset Register (NUAR) - March 2024

Welcome to our monthly update on the National Underground Asset Register (NUAR), an interactive digital map of underground pipes and cables from the Geospatial Commission. It gives planners and excavators standardised access to the data they need, when they need it, to carry out their work effectively and safely. You can find out more on GOV.UK.

An easier way to refresh data

Our network of NUAR Data Leads in asset owning organisations, play a crucial role in keeping the data shared through NUAR up-to-date. However, to help make data refreshing even easier, we have now launched an ‘API’ that can be used to automate the process.

Base maps for Northern Ireland

The NUAR team have been working closely with Ordnance Survey of Northern Ireland to secure base maps for the region. Our Development Team are now busy integrating these base maps into the platform, ready for the launch of the minimum viable product (MVP) in Northern Ireland later this spring.

NUAR Onboarding in 60

If you are an underground asset owner that is not fully signed up to NUAR yet, why not join one of our new ‘NUAR Onboarding in 60’ webinars?

Sarah McHale (AtkinsRéalis) and Stephen Thorp (Geospatial Commission) will provide you with an overview of the onboarding journey, explain the legal agreements that underpin that process and confirm the next steps to progress your journey.

Sign-up for Wednesday 27 March here.

Get onboard

If you work for an underground asset owner that operates in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, that you do not think is fully signed up to NUAR yet, contact our onboarding team by completing our asset owner onboarding form.

If you are a contractor working on behalf of an asset owner, please contact them to see if they can provide you access.
